Of course, you would want to look your best on your wedding day. At the same time, you must be comfortable. One of the first decisions you have to make is to decide on the type of hair extension you want to use. After that, you determine the kind of style you want to wear. Justin Espinoza, who is the master stylist at Hottie Hair Salon, gave some useful tips regarding hair extensions. Espinoza said that an easy way to navigate through options is to decide to wear the extension upwards or downwards. 

Crystal Frehner, the co-founder of Hottie Hair Extensions and Hair Salon in Las Vegas, affirmed her salon had hosted several brides and bridal trains over the years. She said that most brides use high extensions on their wedding day.

Extensions are great for a wedding day as the increased length and volume of hair increase the grandeur of the wedding veil. Frehner explained further that clip-in extensions are the most commonly used extension types for the bride and her bridal train. She said clip-ins present a simple, effective, and cost-efficient means of adding volume, length, and color to hair.  

“At Hottie Hair, we usually advise you to come for a trial before the wedding day. Our hairstylists seize the opportunity to review various hairstyles with you. After that, they create the necessary customization and cut the perfect blend that gives you a perfect look on your day,” says Frehner.

Frehner explained that though clip-ins do require some work in advance. There is a need to prepare them before the wedding day to create the style the bride desires. A typical prep scenario is the curling of the extensions with the right iron and keeping it in shape with a holding spray. Such background work is required for a style that involves waves. “Some styles may require the use of set-in pin curls which are equally excellent,” says Espinoza

The bride can choose to detach the temporary extensions immediately after the wedding day. Tape in extensions are a better option for those who want to keep the extension for more extended periods. Espinoza cautioned ladies that want to wear more permanent hair extension about the need for consistent home and salon maintenance. She also hinted that extremely curly hairs would not align properly with tape in extensions. “Hottie Hair is most appropriate in such scenarios, it works excellently for both wavy and straight hair textures,” says Espinoza.

Finally, bear in mind that your wedding day is a lifetime event. You deserve the best, but you should not take risks. That is why you should consult a professional stylist to know if extensions are suitable for your hair type before your wedding day. Buy quality extensions and seek the service of a reputable stylist to help create a styling plan towards your wedding day. ” The plan should include extension customization which gives a perfect blend of color, shape that suits your shape and appearance perfectly,” Espinoza advised.
